Sometimes, it takes a knowledgeable bodywork expert to help get you to your optimal level. This is what sets Bruce apart and makes the Matsuno Wellness your place for massage Plano, the last solution to your bodywork needs. We specialize in helping to better your posture. Your body is an advanced pulley and leverage system, that is surrounded and connected with fascia (connective tissue). It is constantly changing to adapt to the demands that we place on our bodies. Over time our body adaptation becomes our form, and now our form becomes our movement patterns. Those patterns of strain and loads create stresses on our joints, disk, vertebral spine and create wear and tear and structural changes.
We specialize in analyzing your body, your posture, and relate them to how we can put together a full body approach that is specific to your needs. The Rolf method of structural integration is a full body manual soft tissue and movement approach that works specifically with your fascial tissue, by performing manual soft tissue manipulation, with an active participation of the client. In this work, your connective tissue is being freed from restriction, so it can allow restricted muscles to slide over one another. Length is brought back where the body was locked short. Your shoulders are a prime example. You work on a computer all day long. You may have an ergonomic chair, but over time as your head neck and shoulder move forward causing strains in your head, neck, shoulder, and upper back. Your connective tissue over time forms to hold the demands that you put on it. Now there is a saying “if you have cracks in the walls of your house, does it makes sense to feel the cracks? or does it make better sense to fix the foundation” Back to your upper back pain, shoulder pain, neck pain, we help by organizing your bodies structure to helps to eliminate the strains and loads on your body that is causing you chronic pain. Unlike, some of the massage and bodywork chains that offer massage and bodywork, they usually are trained to do a complete massage therapy routine that they perform person after person. Most of them are fairly new to the field and most clients don’t get the results they are looking for. Bruce is a graduate of 4 separate massage and bodywork schools and many continual education classes over the last 20 years.
Bruce specializes in Orthopedic and Medical massage. Orthopedic/medical massage is outcome based. The treatment is performed after you been evaluated licensed medical practitioner and prescribed a diagnosis. From here, orthopedic/medical massage treatments are administered with Myofascial release, specific manual soft tissue manipulation, cross friction fiber, deep tissue/trigger point therapy for an outcome based treatments.
We bring relief to Hip pain and low back pain. We work with your balance with your pelvis. chronic hip pain can come from degeneration of the hip, but we have helped hip pain sufferers by working with your soft tissue imbalances that may be more aligned with root causes. Again, fascial imbalances create stresses on your joints. Aligning, lengthening, and organizing your fascia can bring balance and take those stresses that maybe the cause or part of the cause of your pain.
Are you a professional athlete or a weekend warrior athlete that wants to enhance their game, by playing pain-free. We like to call it prehab therapy. Why wait to just fix an injury? A good analogy would be if you had a finely tuned race car and take it out of the garage to race. After the race, would it make sense to park it back in the garage for the next race? Or, would it make more sense to make sure the alignment was good to prevent wear and tear on the tires and engine, oil change, engine tune up etc……??? Which scenario would you be able to perform at your most optimal level? Which would have less risk of breaking down? If you agree too, that taking time and effort for maintenance, then you’re going to be able to race longer and win the race. Your body is no difference, except, we really can’t change our parts, or really want to get to the level that you have too.
We service the DFW metroplex, including the surrounding suburbs of Allen, Frisco, Mckinney, Castle Hills, Carrollton, Prosper, and North Dallas.
